  • "Great property."

    Very comfortable stay..Sorry forgot to write in the visitors book ,we were a bit preoccupied Thursday back home. The appliance tech can be a bit baffling, for an oap, youngsters sorted it out.

  • "Our fourth stay at Boskensoe Barns, a first at The Pig House, and again a wonderful stay."

    A very luxurious property in a lovely location. Very comfortable for 6 adults. The village pub is a nice traditional pub with good food. A bit further afield we would recommend the Royal Standard at Flushing and The Pandora Inn Mylor Bridge. Looking forward to our return in September!

  • "Stayed a week and could have stayed much longer ."

    This is an exceptional property and if you are looking at this property do not hesitate to book - you will not be disappointed. The quality and layouts well designed and the location is fantastic.. If you have a dog, this is for you. It is dog friendly and has local walks and its own secure exercise area. The garden is secure for children and pets. Organised a Waitrose delivery on arrival and a great local shop in the village. We will book this property again if and when we return to the area. One of the best properties we have ever stayed in - faultless!

  • "We had a wonderful stay at The Pig House and other members of our family stayed just across the courtyard at The Stable."

    The Pig House had everything we needed and what we found particularly useful as part of a large group was that there wasn’t just 6 of everything in the kitchen. All 9 of us from the Pig House and The Stable were able to eat and drink together without carrying plates and glasses between properties. The enclosed garden and dog exercise area were also very useful for our lively cocker spaniel! We had a wonderful time and will definitely recommend these properties to friends and family and will stay again next time we visit this area of Cornwall.

    Very comfortable with plenty of space for six adults and two dogs. The weather was mixed add it was by lovely to be able to come home to the hot tub on a mizzly day. On one occasion we had a problem with a shower and Mark (sorry I think that was the name) was straight across to fix it, despite being a Sunday evening. We will definitely be back.

  • "Absolutely loved Pig House!"

    Beautiful decor, lots of space, the ability to create great ambience with the dimmable lighting, surround sound and woodburner in the evening. Great location, in a small village away from everything but still only 10min away from Falmouth. The property was very clean, well maintained and the selection of local produce to welcome us was a sweet touch. Only bit of feedback would be to put in a coffee/nespresso machine but that’s about it

    Such a beautiful property which made us feel at home as soon as we walked in! We were welcomed with beautiful fresh flowers and a package of milk, bread and some other local produce.

  • "Utterly amazing."

    Such a lovely place to get away from everything and everyone was extremely friendly and the cottage was immaculate. I do always find it a little odd though, when spending so much money and with a full day with no access for cleaning (and the place was beautifully clean), that your asked to strip your beds and bag up your towels. It's probably me as lots if cottages do it but it's not the nicest way to end such a lovely indulgent week.

The Hot tub was cold on arrival but this was good as they had replaced the water on arrival ready for next day and was wonderful! The showers were lovely and hot, and for tall people excellent! The surrounding area is beautiful and the barn is easily accessed just off a main road.

    The Pig House has been beautifully renovated and caters for all your needs, everything has been carefully thought about. The beds are so comfy, the showers are great, the kitchen is fully stocked, the TV choices and the music system is fab and the hot tub is the icing on the cake! The “Cornish treats” that great you on arrival are a really nice touch and you have everything you need to help you get though the first few days of your holiday milk, tea, coffee etc. There is lots to explore in the local area and we can’t wait to return in September. Thanks again for a truly relaxing holiday.

Unpleasant smell of drains in the main bathroom on occasions, but we weren't using it so it didn't matter to us. Good for access to Glendurgan and Trebah gardens, and very close to beaches.

    Me and my family were the first to stay here and everything was amazing! The hot tub was great enclosed garden the living and kitchen area was beautiful the bedrooms where so warm and comfortable. The bathrooms were something out of a 5 star hotel! There is a very small town with a shop and pubs 2 min walk away the beach you do have to drive to but there is more then enough parking! And it’s great with places to eat you can walk along the beach! The place it self is enclosed so no one else can get in there is 2 other places there for bigger or smaller family’s that do allow pets. Everything you need is there they give you things for the washing machine and dish washer it’s just a case of looking through all the cuboards to find it. You even had a few bits of food like milk, bread, short bread, wine and bear when you get there which is fantastic. I will be back very soon here so amazing!!
